Riverside Holiday home with kitchenette and balcony
We will be requiring proof on arrival of double covid 19 vaccinations and a waiver must be signed to state you are not exhibiting symptoms and also for use of our amenities.

Along with our already stringent cleaning protocols, we have now implemented a chemical free steam sanitizing protocol. To help ensure the safety of our guests and to give adequate time for preparation, we are leaving ample time, as guildelines recommend. This may result in slightly later or earlier check ins and check outs.

LEAVE THE CITY BEHIND! Relax and Rejuvenate, surrounded by nature in your English country inspired private suite with Juliette balcony. Fall asleep to the sound of the river outside your window. Rest and reconnect in our spacious and beautifully decorated 2nd floor suite in our converted GRIST MILL.
The 'ISLAND MILL GETAWAY' has two suites.
You are viewing our Country Suite on the 2nd floor.

Entrance is gained through the original mill doors at our shared front entrance. You can come and go as you please with the access code. The original mill stairs, (which are a bit steeper than normal stairs), lead you to your private second floor suite. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed. The mill is set up very much like an inn. Access to the riverside patio and hot tub is through the back doors on the main floor.

OUR " ISLAND MILL GETAWAY" is the perfect spot to connect with nature and also so close to everything the area has to offer; Prince Edward wine region and Kingston and The 1000 Islands, great restaurants, antiquing, shopping, live performances and many tourist attractions.
The Island Mill Getaway is a converted grist mill and is our home as well as two vacation rental suites. Our Miller's Retreat suite is on the bottom level, two floors under the Country Suite. We're on an island in the Salmon River between 2 waterfalls accessible by one lane bridges on and off the island. We're just 2 hours east of Toronto and conveniently located between the Prince Edward County Sandbanks and Wineries and Kingston and The Thousand Islands, conveniently located to all our area has to offer as well as our property offering an all season hot tub with private times on even numbered hours, boating, swimming and cycling all included in your stay. PROVINCIAL PARK PASS IS INCLUDED FOR MINIMUM ONE DAY until March 31, 2021 and from May1-Oct.31, 2021.

A beautiful, second story, self-contained suite with a European inspired vintage decor. Boats and bicycles, abundant wildlife and gardens and all just 6 minutes from the 401 hwy and 12 minutes from Prince Edward County.

You will enjoy a lovely, large, comfortable suite with a self-contained kitchenette which includes a fridge, food storage and prep areas, microwave, toaster/convection oven, induction hot plate, french press coffee maker, tea, coffee, all pots and pans, utensils, etc for light cooking. The suite has a French bedroom set with a queen size bed and a Tempurpedic memory foam mattress with top quality bedding, just perfect for falling asleep to the sound of the waterfalls outside your window. Toiletries, bath robes and towels are provided. The Country Suite has antiques, oak floors, carpeting and hand sewn silk lampshades.

You have full access to our patio by the waterfalls, kayaks, a canoe, peddleboat and touring bicycles during the warmer months and a riverside hot tub under the stars all at no extra charge. With waterfront on three sides, you'll likely want to spend some time on the river. Boats and bicycles are provided from May long weekend until end of October. Barbeque, dine and relax on padded swivel chairs under our covered pergola on the outdoor patio by the river.
Enjoying nature is the main occupation here. Lying under a willow tree beside the waterfalls, paddling up the river, or touring the countryside by bicycle can really eat up a day. You can also enjoy a refreshing swim in the waterfalls. A waiver must be signed prior to using the facilities due to the inherent dangers associated with being near the water.
We live in the very picturesque historic hamlet of Lonsdale which has been the subject of many artists and photographers. The river is part of an historic canoe route and many enthusiasts brave the rapids in May. The river quietens come June for relaxing paddles. It is the river that gives this place it's magical vibe and brings the wildlife in abundance for our pleasure. Great Blue Herons, Song Birds, Eagles, Otters, Beavers, Muskrats, Geese, Ducks, Swans, Turtles, song birds and many others are all happy to call Lonsdale home or stop by to say hi. You never know who is going to drop by next. The grounds are full of flowers and birds and the sound of the waterfalls makes this an ideal spot to just kick back and enjoy.

We encourage you to bring your own food and prepare light meals in your private kitchenette, as the closest restaurants are a 15 minute drive away and there are no stores in the immediate area. There are three grocery stores in Napanee , a 20 minute drive east or Belleville, a 25 minute drive west or in Picton, 30 minutes south. You may also use the outdoor barbeque. There are many nice restaurants and eateries within Napanee, Prince Edward and Belleville/Kingston areas. Regular and specialty teas, french press coffee, bottled water, milk, cream, sugar and honey are always available in your room. We also provide the little things for cooking that are difficult to transport such as cooking oil and spices. You are welcome to pick fresh herbs and salad greens from our organic vegetable gardens in the summer months. Please feel free to use our main floor freezer and fridge for extra food storage.

There is WiFi available.

Enjoy the outdoor all season hot tub under the stars by the river and waterfall. There are also several nearby cross country ski locations, walking trails, first class performances at Belleville's Empire and Kingston's Grand Theatre and many other seasonal attractions in our area during the cooler months.

We are located 2 hours east of Toronto just 6 minutes from the 401. Picton is 30 minutes to the south, Kingston is 35 minutes east and Belleville is 25 minutes west.
